Threat of Covid still exists

It has become impossible for medical authorities to identify Covid-19 cases now due to the lack of medical kits at government hospitals, said Public Health Inspectors’ Union President Upul Rohana said.

He said that no antigen tests are being conducted at any PHIs office across the country.

The vaccination programme against Covid-19 was successfully implemented countrywide in the past and the symptoms of the Omicron variant among the infected were not virulent.

Rohana said that many people are of the opinion that the pandemic is no more in Sri Lanka. But this conclusion is totally incorrect according to the latest surveys done by Health authorities.

He stressed the importance of following health guidelines to the letter as in the past to prevent any possible outbreak of the pandemic once again in the country.
